Two of the parades we made in front of Berlin's official film festival....
Tromanale is the Berlin film festival dedicated to bringing back art to the people. Set to run during Germany's well known Berlinale (the Berlin Film Festival), Tromanale aims to provide a space to celebrate real independent cinema, free from the exclusive pomposity of more mainstream festivals.
Inspired by the Tromadance festival in America, Tromanale is a film festival truly devoted to independent films, filmmakers and fans. For the very first time in Europe, Tromanale presents the opportunity to enter your film to the festival free of charge. If the reason you made that film was because you wanted it to be seen, the Tromanale is the festival to enter.
Here at Tromanale, we are fed up with prohibitive entry charges and cronyism that so often stifles the true independence and vision in film making today. We don't care who you are: if you want to enter your film: do it! Your film will not be judged on budget or names or the "right" equipment. It can be as experimental, or as traditional as you like!
